I have been with The Co-operators since 1983. I have operated three successful sales offices and have an extensive claims background that has allowed us to identify and protect client needs. I am a Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) with the Insurance Institute of Canada (1991), and am also a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Certified Health Insurance Specialist (CHS) with Advocis, the Financial Advisors Association of Canada.

If you are from Airdrie or the surrounding area are looking for great service and sound advice, you should be dealing with us!

Cheryl Penner

Cheryl Penner, Associate Insurance Advisor

Cheryl has worked in the insurance industry since 2007, joining The Co-operators in 2014. Insurance can sometimes be confusing or complicated; this is why it is so important to Cheryl to sit down with her clients to answer the questions they may have. She is able to assist with Auto, Home and Farm insurance inquiries, whether you are a current client or if you are interested in insuring with The Co-operators. Cheryl and her family have lived in the Airdrie area for over 10 years and she loves the small-town feel in our growing city.

This enables Tyler to ensure that each and every client leaves the office with the protection and peace of mind they deserve. Currently specializing in Life and Wealth insurance, Tyler assists with Business and Auto insurance as well.

Why choose co-operatives?

Co-operatives like The Co-operators Group Limited connect their values to supporting the communities where they live and work. They are viable businesses that are more concerned with serving your needs than making money, and they look for ways to serve you better by creating ways for you to influence their business decisions. In return, they ensure you have the information you need to make choices that are best for you.

There are hundreds of co-ops benefiting Canadians across the country; all are strong businesses owned and operated by the members who use their services and governed based on shared values. Look for them in your community.
